The macula is the area of the fundus giving us the most clear and detailed vision. It is the “center” of our optic field, which we use to focus on objects and to see even the finest details.
Conditions of the macula and fundus usually manifest themselves through impaired central or peripheral vision, with the alteration of the shape of objects and even with the total loss of parts of the visual field.
Early diagnosis of conditions of the macula and fundus is of the utmost importance. The sooner the disease is diagnosed and the treatment begins, the better the prognosis.
The Macula and Retina Department specializes in the management of:
- Age-related macular degeneration and
- Diabetic retinopathy
We offer patients the most modern and individualized therapeutic approaches for both conditions.
In this Department, the following conditions are also treated:
- Vascular diseases of the retina, such as vascular occlusions
- Hereditary conditions and degenerative diseases such as retinitis pigmentosa.
- Inflammations and tumors of the posterior segment of the eye and
- All other pathological conditions of the retina and macula.
In the Department, we perform all modern treatment techniques, such as intravitreal injections, laser photocoagulation etc.
Our equipment includes the most modern imaging and diagnostic examinations for the posterior chamber, such as:
- Optical Coherence Tomography
- Fundus camera for fluorescein angiography, auto fluorescence and angiography with indocyanine
- Visual fields
- Electrophysiological testing
- Eye ultrasound
- The latest OCT-angiography dye-free imaging method, with OCT Angiovue.
